Too often, entrepreneurs spend so much time taking care of their business, that they forget to take care of themselves. For the first time, REAP and Human Touch Events are hosting a one-day retreat for entrepreneurs so that they begin the new year as they mean to go on.
The Be Well Retreat will be held at the Bridgeland Riverside Community Association on January 31, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., featuring a myriad of wellness activities and interactive workshops throughout the day. It begins with breakfast catered by The Fine Diner Bistro followed by a keynote presentation: "Letting go of the resolution mindset" by Amber Romaniuk.
Four blocks of 60-minute workshops are designed to help you lead a happier, more productive life. There are three workshops to choose from in each block, featuring such topics as responsible tourism presented by Adventure with Purpose, five steps to your look that screams success presented by Adrienne Furrie Image, and creating an oasis for home and work presented by DIRTT Environmental Solutions and Lucida, Wellbeing by Design.
“The topic of the retreat, Be Well, is in perfect alignment with what we do at Lucida, Wellbeing by Design. Wellbeing is the heart of our work,” says Nora Bouz, founder and holistic interior designer.
“Around the world, design and architecture roles are shifting to be an essential component of improving the wellbeing of people and planet. Starting from the smallest cell, our homes, we can improve our own state of being for a healthier family, community, city and planet.”
Each of the four blocks will also contain fitness activities to participate in. Holistic fitness coach Mobifit will share the top five tips for nutrition, stretches and exercises that create longevity, LIV Yoga + Wellness will lead a yoga class, and meditation studio Modern + Mindful will lead a walking meditation.
"Being well, to me, means that all aspects of life are in balance," says Modern + Mindful co-founder Sarah Webb. "Both the body and mind kept in good health through physical fitness and brain strengthening exercises -- which meditation plays a huge role in, and that work, play, family, friends, and healthy habits are all fitting into day-to-day life."
Between the blocks, attendees will be fed and watered with two snack breaks, and a lunch catered by Grate & Barrel – a grilled cheese joint in Bridgeland. All meals and snacks provided will have gluten-free and vegan options available.
Finally, the event will close with a special presentation by Vital Partners – a benefits advisory firm that specializes in turnkey benefit solutions for entrepreneurs and small businesses – of the new REAP benefits plan.
REAP is excited to usher in 2018 in a way that supports the personal growth and success of those who work so hard to build businesses that are a force for good.
